This EnviroSlope Geoweb Face steepend slope was used around a large concrete culvert on Anthony Henday Drive on the Whitemud Creek crossing in Edmonton.
The Whitemud creek crossing was originally designed as an arch structure with wing walls and a tiered concrete faced wall system. At the request of the prime contractor, Layfield value engineered the original designed concrete wall system into a geogrid reinforced steepened slope (RSS) system. After providing preliminary design and technical assistance to the prime contractor, Layfield worked in close conjunction with the geotechnical engineer to complete a final design. The Layfield chose to use the LP 120T PVC coated, polyester geogrid, which received approval from the design geotechnical engineer, and Layfield proceeded to work with the prime contractor on the construction. The RSS is slated for completion in spring 2005.
